    Hi @Goddie.......
    HMAS Brisbane artificial reef in Moreton Bay has lots of sea life on it now. It's an old war ship that was sunk in 2005 for the purposes of cultivating a new habitat for sea life. You can reach it by a 20 min boat ride out from
    Mooloolaba through a licenced dive tour operator or by obtaining a permit for a private dive from Maroochy Tourism..

    Bundaberg is where the Great Barrier Reef officially begins in the south, and the area offers some great dive deals, without the crowds of some of the more popular venues
